This new work brings pianist Pat Battstone together with flutist Giorgia Santoro on a musical journey using Daniela Chionna's artwork, "Appunti Onirici" ("Dream Notes") as the road map, as the musical scores. Pat says: "The idea of playing music to Daniela's artwork began in the summer of 2017 and with the collaboration of Giorgia beginning with the New Destinations sessions, the stage was set. Our subsequent meetings further solidified our aspect of playing - Question and Response, Change and Adaptation, Emotional Cohesion, and a deep familiarity of where the other is going."

In his day Gene Krupa was the finest big band drummer and even today it is hard to think of a drummer who could match his quality and stamina. Gene led a tempestuous career at one point being imprisoned on a trumped up marijuana charge, brought about by a spiteful politician, Gene had thoughtlessly offended. Such was his popularity that a biopic movie was made about him featuring Sal Mineo as the great man. On this CD we bring you performances by Gene and his orchestra, The Gene Krupa Sextet and the show stopping performance with Benny Goodman And His Orchestra of Sing. Sing, Sing recorded on January the 16th 1938.

Rome-ing
Release Date: 3/20/2020
Format: CD
List Price: (A17) $17.98 

Recorded in Rome, perfect stage, great acoustics, four master performers with a vast knowledge of idioms as well as a deep understanding of non-idiomatic, abstract means of musical expression and four sets of ears as widely open as the gates of the Colosseum make up the ingredients to this fine live recording. The players flow together effortlessly and are able to create soundscapes of tension and release, harsh noise and delicate whisper, 'engin-ears' of mutual fearlessness doing away with the meaningless separation of genres. Roaming through sounds, carried by trust and wealth of experience they uncoil a steady stream of poised musicality that simply feels right yet defies explanation.

Jump
Release Date: 2/14/2020
Format: CD
List Price: (B16) $16.98 

A couple of years ago guitarist Les Davidson suggested to Sniff 'n' the Tears singer/songwriter Paul Roberts that they should get out and do some gigs. Only this time as a duo. The current music scene seems to be increasingly about live performance and all they would need as an acoustic duo would be their guitars; the logistics of putting a band together for anything other than a fair-sized tour being fairly costly. The first two gigs they did were very encouraging as not only did the audience enjoy hearing the songs they knew but feedback from people afterwards suggested they had gained new insights into the songs. This has opened up a whole range of possibilities explored on the new album "Jump".

List Price: (A17) $17.98 

Vinz released his first solo guitar CD in 2004. Since that time he took part in four more recordings with different French musicians for Leo Records. Now, fifteen years later he returns to his original solo project, but he is a different man. Has he mellowed? One can hear several guitars and a voice playing at the same time. He takes you into his world of moods, emotions and sounds you've never heard before. As he writes: "on the run… just behind: last border to cross... risk... exile new future... all so close... illusion?... a no man's land...?" there is a lot of sense in these two lines.
